Dr. Anne Hendershott, professor of Sociology and director of the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life, writes on recent sexual abuse cases on college campuses.
As the widening circle of sex abuse and harassment accusations expands to include Hollywood celebrities, politicians, and media moguls, it was only a matter of time before the scandal shifted back again to the university campus.
The Chronicle of Higher Education reported last week that two Stanford English professors—one retired and one deceased—have now been accused of rape.
